ARBITRATION CHOICE OF LAW: MORGAN KEEGAN & CO. INC. V. FORCE (COA 7/6/2007)

MORGAN KEEGAN & CO. INC. V. FORCE
ARBITRATION & MEDIATION: 
2006-CA-000311
PUBLISHED: AFFIRMING
PANEL: COMBS PRESIDING; KELLER, BUCKINGHAM CONCUR
COUNTY: WARREN
DATE RENDERED: 7/6/2007

The Court upheld the lower Court’s decision to not compel arbitration as the contract required the use of Tennessee law. Tennessee law dictates that a claim of fraud in the inducement of the contract as a whole may be litigated in state court and should not have the arbitration clause compelled.
